The offer itself would help Barca financially for the upcoming transfer market, however, the most important factor of the offer is that the Premier League wants Barcelona’s lucrative signing. Josep Maria Bartomeu and his team were worried about how they would get rid of the former Liverpool man.
The management committee of the Catalan club is willing to let Coutinho leave because of his 12 million euros per season salary that might hold the club back from signing a world-class player. Apart from the financial aspects, the Brazilian has not been the same talismanic midfielder he once was in Liverpool.
The report from Don Balon states that Chelsea has offered Barcelona 100 million euros for Philippe Coutinho and Marc Cucurella. However, Barca demand at least 160 million euros instead as the president believes that the Brazilian is worth 100 million euros alone.
Upon hearing the Catalans decision on the initial offer, the Blues have offered 120 million euros for both the players and Josep Maria Bartomeu has considered accepting the offer. There might be a new drift at the club as Quique Setien values Coutinho very highly and wants him at the club next season, meanwhile, Bartomeu has already accepted an offer to let their lucrative signing go.
If Coutinho does stay next season along with Ousmane Dembele then the return of Neymar or the signing of Lautaro Martinez seems to be impossible.
